Dundee has an international reputation for diabetes research, education and informatics developments. With the global growing prevalence of diabetes there is an increasing need for healthcare professionals to upskill in diabetes care and understand how to organise healthcare for the efficient management of chronic diseases.

The course has been designed to allow students to remain in their jobs while studying and for their studies to be able to have an immediate impact in their work environment.

What is so good about this course?

The programme aims to:

- provide a comprehensive programme of diabetes education for health care professionals
- develop competence in the diagnosis, treatment, and decision-making in the care of persons with diabetes
- establish students with a basic grounding in educational/ behaviour change theory with application to patient and professional education
- develop leadership and evaluation skills in the organisation and delivery of care in both primary care and hospitals to empower service delivery improvement
- establish a stimulating environment for research, teaching and learning about diabetes
- encourage a culture for training of health care professionals by the development of a network of experienced clinical teachers.
- allow health care professionals to enhance their knowledge and skills while remaining in work
- bring immediate benefits into the workplace through the application of their learning in their work-place based projects
- be culturally sensitive
- encourage a culture of multidisciplinary working in the workplace.

The course is aimed at working-professionals who wish to facilitate evidence-based change in clinical care and management within their healthcare system and recognise that this requires not just clinical knowledge but also skills in leadership, inter-professional education, organisational management, reflective professional practice and quality improvement.

Degree Combinations

Diabetes Care, Education & Management PGDip

How you will be taught

The teaching approach is one of blended learning with face to face teaching (lectures, group work, case discussions, workshops, simulation exercises, quizzes) blended with online activities, case based studies and workplace assessment. Much of the later work can be completed flexibly in the student's own free time, and has been designed around the needs of students who are also working full time.

There are 3 semesters per year. In each semester the student completes one module from a choice of 5 or 6 modules that will be offered each semester. In the partnership with the Dasman Diabetes Institute and Ministry of Health in Kuwait the face to face teaching is hosted at the Dasman Diabetes Institute.

How you will be assessed

All 20 credit modules are assessed on Coursework. To complete each module and to progress to the next, students are required to:

- Attend the face-to-face teaching.
- Complete the workplace-based assignment which requires participants to apply educational principles to their own situation and reflect on the result.
- Students are required to base their projects and activities within their own organisations so that they can utilise their new knowledge and build on opportunities created by the programme to shift the balance of care. The project (or an agreed part of the project) undertaken for Assignment 1 must be completed within 6 weeks from the end of the face-to-face teaching days.

Assignment 1: Workplace Project Report (2000 words - excluding reference list and appendices)
A critical examination of the student’s own workplace-based project, which is undertaken in response to the specific module aims and study topics (or a series of activities relating to the module).

Assignment 2: Reflective Essay (1500 words - excluding reference list and appendices)
A reflective analysis of the student’s own learning and development throughout the module, describing the impact that the module study activities and workplace-based project experiences have had upon their own thinking and professional practice.

Marks are awarded equally between Assignment 1: the description of the workplace-based assignment and Assignment 2: the reflective analysis of the project.

The Dissertation Module (60 credits) which must be passed to graduate with the MSc is assessed through a 12,000-15,000 word thesis.

What you will study

Students can choose to exit at Certificate, Diploma or MSc level.


- Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) Diabetes Care, Education & Management
The PG Cert requires the achievement of 60 credits through 3 modules: 1 Core module + 1 Educational module + 1 other module

- Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) Diabetes Care, Education & Management
The PG Dip requires the achievement of 120 credits through 6 modules: 1 Core module + 1 Educational module + 1 Organisational module + 1 Research module + 2 other modules

- Postgraduate Masters (MSc) Diabetes Care, Education & Management
The MSc requires the achievement of 180 credits. To obtain the MSc students must successfully complete the PG Dip (120 credits) + the Taught MSc Dissertation Module (60 credits).


Modules can be chosen from the following selection. Many modules appear in more than one category to increase the flexibility of students to create a programme specific to their needs.

Core Modules

Modern Diabetes Care
Science of Diabetes
Organisational Approaches to the Delivery of Care
Clinical Modules

Advanced Diabetes Nutrition

Employability

We would envisage this course/qualification being interesting to healthcare organisations who wish their healthcare professionals (e.g. doctors, nurses, pharmacists, nurse educators, managers etc) to enhance their skills across a range of disciplines required for the management and care of diabetes and other chronic diseases.

This qualification is NOT equivalent to accreditation onto the diabetes medical specialist register e.g. allowing the individual to operate as a diabetes consultant.

An interdisciplinary programme, it draws on various disciplines to provide a critical perspective on contemporary education management.

The exploration of scenarios which embody management problems are an important aspect of the learning process. It also provides a critical guide to education management literature and gives students the skills to engage with it in a critical and analytical way.

It draws on policy, sociology, political science, economics, history and contemporary policy making which acknowledges the 'problem-solving' appeal of educational management but also aims to critically examine its claims and premises. It offers the opportunity to reflect on current management practice in schools, colleges and universities and contextualises current education management issues in relation to historical economic and political factors.

- Course purpose -

For all those who teach, lecture or organise educational provision at any level. The programme enables professionals concerned with education to reflect on their practice and to inform such reflection by extending their knowledge. Students will be made aware of significant current developments in contemporary pedagogical policy and practice.

If you are currently in a senior management position, then a special route may be possible for you depending upon your experience and courses completed with organisations such as the National College for Teaching and Leadership.

A key aspect of the Education Leadership and Management MA is the undertaking of a piece of research. You will study the foundational skills and concepts in academic enquiry, and planning for your specialist research. Your research will be in the form of a dissertation, as a means of critically enquiring into and developing knowledge about an issue or question relevant to your study.

Delivery Model

Residency
This two-year Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration and Leadership program is comprised of one mandatory two-week on-campus residency, a second residency that can be completed on-campus or online and distance learning courses.

The residency is a carefully designed period of intense academic study in which students complete two courses – Leading and Learning in Higher Education and Approaches to Educational Research in Higher Education.

The schedule of instruction and studying during the residency is structured to optimize the face-to-face access to instructors, develop networks with fellow students, and access the support services of the university if required. The typical daily schedule is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Team meetings, homework, and readings are done outside of these hours.

Online Learning
Distance courses are delivered entirely online through innovative, easy to use Internet technologies. Participants draw upon web resources as well as more traditional print media, while using online discussion groups and drop boxes to work towards the electronic submission of assignments. Prior to the beginning of each course, students are provided with a list of resources including textbooks and/or online readings, plus a detailed course schedule. Learning activities and assignments are designed to allow participants to identify the practical applications of the course content and to work with others to construct both a personal and shared meaning from their experiences.

Each course requires a level of effort of approximately 10 hours per week. This varies from student to student and becomes easier as students familiarize themselves with Royal Roads University's distance learning technologies, and learn how to work effectively with team members in a virtual setting.

CORE MODULES

Strategic Management in Education

This module will focus on developing a deeper understanding of effective strategic planning in order to achieve organisational aims. Students will need to be able to make clear links between the strategic planning and the strategic vision of their institutions. They will engage with theoretical models that will encourage them to evaluate and review existing provision and to consider planning for improved management within their institutions. They will combine independent reading and wider research with focused work based learning to draw from real context experience and practice. They will develop an implementation plan in the form of a presentation complete with rationale and reflective commentary.

Leading Educational Change and Improvement

Within this module students will engage in theory and wider research in relation to performance evaluation, leading change, and improvement planning and change management. Students are required to use metrics and their knowledge and understanding of benchmarking performance in order to identify an area of practice that would benefit from improvement they will produce a critically reflective commentary that will provide the underpinning rationale for the action plan, linked to models of good practice. The commentary will be required to evidence a deep level of understanding of change management and include proposed strategies for mitigating against any perceived barriers to change.

Developing Effective Management Systems

This module will enable students to engage in a process of critical evaluation and analysis to focus upon systems for managing information, relationships including staff and stakeholders, communication and reporting. Ensuring knowledge is managed effectively in order to provide comprehensive information that will facilitate efficient leadership and management in relation to staff, stakeholders, finance, facilities and measures for dealing with wider policy issues. This module encourages students to focus on internal and external systems in order to engage in a meaning review of their own organisation whilst drilling down to evaluate procedural systems and the effectiveness of information management. The module will concentrate on programme rather than project management and students will not only review and evaluate their own systems and processes, but also engage in wider research by comparing and contrasting management systems across other organisations; either from education, associated disciplines such as health or social care or from industry.

Professional Enquiry in Education

This module offers students the opportunity to develop specialist knowledge and expertise in an area of personal and professional interest, relating to education. The notion of enquiry used in this module is broad and is intended to reflect the contributions which students bring to advanced study of education from both their academic and professional contexts. Students may pursue individual or small group enquiries or a larger group of students may work, with a specialist tutor, to enquire into an agreed subject area together.

Research Methodology

The module examines diverse approaches to educational research and explores research ethics, methodologies, methods and design. The module will draw upon a range of research literature and theory so that students are exposed to the idea of challenging existing theoretical stances and philosophical aspects of educational research. The module is designed to support the needs of postgraduate students who are ready to prepare a major project proposal. This module will incorporate peer group and tutor-facilitated discussions and observations plus tutor inputs and small group and whole group study.

Major Project

The Major Project, which is central to the Masters award, enables students to demonstrate their ability to synthesise learning from previous modules and use this learning as the basis for planning, conducting and writing up a research or work-based project.
